Ultra High-Performance Network Security

Digital enterprises are processing vast amounts of encrypted traffic and content rich data along with an increased emphasis on optimized user experiences.  The digital attack surface has spawned new, complex forms of attacks that require advanced protection to be applied at anytime, anywhere the threat is discovered.  Today’s next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) must reliably handle large volumes of network and cloud traffic, provide consolidated advanced security in a smaller, more efficient physical footprint, and accommodate new security requirements such as extensive inspection of encrypted traffic for sophisticated malware without impacting performance. 

The new FortiGate 6000 NGFW appliances feature the latest Fortinet innovation, to deliver leading edge security, performance, and connectivity for the most demanding network needs. The 6000 series combines unprecedented threat protection and SSL inspection performance in an easy to manage, compact appliance.
